Track Name: Long Live
I don’t know if I tried
Hard enough or if I lied
You’re something good
I feel like I should

It’s time for the parade
Carry me through the day
Thank you for this frown
When I’m sad I’m not down
Lord I’m sorry when I lie
Or if I push you aside

With two hands on my throat
And your words on my mind
You won’t leave me alone
You won’t let me do time

You knock nobody’s home
You knock nobody’s home
I knock somebody’s home
I knock somebody’s home
I knock somebody’s home
I knock somebody’s home

I don’t wanna die
Not today not tomorrow either
Not today not tomorrow either
Not today not tomorrow either
Not today not tomorrow either

I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna die
I’m sorry when I lie
I don’t wanna die
Track Name: You Can't Take My Heart Away from Me
The caves we saw are not the same
I’m not fog and I’m not rain
You’re a storm holding on
You’re a room on fire
You make me feel much higher

A flower in full bloom
I flatlined in the stall
You were in the waiting room
I knew it was coming
And I knew I was nothing at all

I lost all the good inside when I died
I won’t be the one you wished for
The inside eye
I can see my future

We’re not the same
We’re not the same
Fill me up with your light
I will be the glitter in your life

I will be the one to shine
On and on and on and on and on
I will be the one to shine on
And on and on and on and on and on and on
I was the one who shined on

You can’t take my heart away
I can’t take my heart away from me
I can take everything that you own
But you can’t my heart away from me
I can take everything that you own
I can take everything that you own
But you can’t my heart away from me
Track Name: Hard Roads/Love Rock
Forgive me if I'm a sinner
But forget the past
This is all that's left

I wanna be the one who steal home in the end
I care to be a better man than I am
I care to be braver than I have been

Hard roads are better to walk upon
Hard roads are better to walk upon

Forgive me if I'm a sinner
But forget the past
This is all that's left

I wanna be the one who steal home in the end
I care to be a better friend than I am
I care to be kinder than I have been

Hard roads are better to walk upon
Hard roads are better to walk upon

'Love Rock' is a place I lied
I came up with things to hide
I showed no mercy
Followed the water down stream
Always in-between
And I won't

'Love Rock' is a place I died
I jumped off onto smaller jagged stones
They brought me home

'Love Rock' is a place I tried
To become anyone
But it didn't work out right

'Love Rock' is a place I might
Bring you someday
If I don't I will surely cry
And if I do
I will cry, too

You're inside my heart to stay
And this is everyday
You're inside my heart to stay
And this is everyday
You're inside my heart to stay
And this is everyday
